Yeah, it’s pretty fun when two Infiltrators don’t shred the bosses in 4 seconds or when your entire team isn’t completely gone before you even get to Wave 10 lol.
But yeah, I do think the AI could be improved a bit for Karn & Jermad, as well as other aspects for the other bosses.
Karn should retreat more often, rather than just stand there like an idiot and get absolutely pelted. I think Jermad is alright where he’s at, I think. Just needs to be a little more dangerous close range.
For the others, I would greatly appreciate if they took the time & went through the effort of modeling RAAM’s Troika & Skorge’s chainsaw staff as well as polishing up their combat before they fully release them into Horde (cuz you know that’s where this is going lol).
I mean, they’d function the same, for the most part.
But, I think RAAM should be able to punish close range builds, cuz you can all just run up to him and bully him lmao. His main weapon should be the Troika, but if you get too close he should do an instant execution the same way Cyclops/Palace Guards do with the chainsaws. For that, it’d be sick if he did both the “Gutted” one & the beheading one from RAAM’s Shadow at random.
For Skorge, his Chainsaw Staff would work the same as his Breaker Mace does, obviously. He would just run up & instant chainsaw you (or duel you if you have a Lancer). They should also make him a bit faster, I think.
It’d be gnarly if they also went the extra (extra) mile and made him do the Gears 2 thing where he shoots up into the sky to recover if he takes a ton of damage. But, I’m guessing that’d be probably be awful to try and program lol. Maybe they could just give him the Matriarch leap, where she jumps across the map when she takes heavy damage.
For Myrrah… I actually don’t know what they could do to make it more interesting besides just straight up giving her The Tempest lmao. Fighting her is super tough, but the whole fight is mainly just fighting off a hundred Palace Guards & then her pulling out a Boltok, It feels too similar to Karn on steroids lol.
If nothing else, at least give her some dialogue. I feel like the Queen would & should constantly be commanding & talking mess from across the map, but instead she’s pretty silent. They all are tbh.
Also, a bonus: they should totally add Sraak in, eventually. Give him his glaive from the comics, it should function similar to the Breaker Mace & the Retro. If he swings it & hits someone, they’re dunzo, they get cut in half. And if you’re in mid to close range, he should charge you.
So, yeah. I guess there’s MY thoughts on this whole thing lmao.
Edit: also, speaking of improving AI. The bots, PLEASE, those gotdamn bots lol. I’ve had enough of being stood over for a solid 5 seconds before being revived lol. Also them just wandering to the other side of the map for no reason & inevitably getting downed.
